Seven-year-old beauty queen Alana Thompson’s TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo had more than 2.1 million viewers tuning into its Sept. 13 episode. The show even topped all individual cable and network broadcasts of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 19 with a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49, reports THR.
According to a source, the Shannon-Thompson family is currently in negotiations with the network and producers to film a second season. The cast, including Alana’s 17-year-old sister, who recently gave birth to her first child, is now asking for a $10,000-an-episode payday;
However, another insider suggests the family will most likely land closer to an $8,000-an-episode salary after negotiations. That would double their season one salary of $4,000 an episode and a possible built-in location fee.
